Janata Dal (Secular)

Janata Dal (secular) came into existence in July 1999, owing to the split of Janata Dal when  some of the leaders of the former Janata Dal decided to support  BJP-led National Democratic Alliance government. The faction which supported NDA was Janata Dal United  (lead by George Fernandes) whereas the remainder of the party became JD(Secular). The JD(S) has kept an equal distance from  UPA as well as NDA.

Janata Dal (Secular) is headed by Shri H.D. Deve Gowda, the former Prime Minister of India. 

JD(S) is the third largest party in Karnataka state legislature. It governed the state in a coalition with INC, the first coalition government in Karnataka.

Janata Dal had split once again between its two leaders in 2005 as JDS (Siddaramaiah) group (AIPJD) and JD(S) (Deve Gowda) group.

Janata Dal(S) has a political presence mainly in Karnatala & in Kerala, a breakaway faction, Janata Dal (Left) is a apart of the LDF government.

Currently, JD(U) is playing a pivotal role in the formation of third front and keeping it together.

In 2009 General Elections, JD(S) could only keep its tally at 3. Although, being third front founder in this election, JD(S) was expected to perform better.

President:  Shri H.D. Deve Gowda
